"We sort of stretched the facts...and people ate it up."
Congressman Paul Kanjorski (D-PA) has an honesty problem. He was publicly honest about the intentional dishonesty of Congressional Democrats (and Democrat candidates) in the run-up to the 2006 election -- particularly with regard to the War in Iraq:
"I'll tell you my impression. We really in this last election, when I say we...the Democrats, I think pushed it as far as we can to the end of the fleet, didn't say it, but we implied it. That if we won the Congressional elections, we could stop the war. Now anybody was a good student of Government would know that wasn't true. But you know, the temptation to want to win back the Congress, we sort of stretched the facts...and people ate it up."
My friend and esteemed RedState colleague Jeff Emanuel has more on the Democrats' fact stretching about the war.
